OK...  you want a "Default to: for forwards"...  you can open a new
report at http://www.thewildbeast.co.uk/claws-mail/bugzilla/index.cgi
Make sure to set Severity to enhancement.

this sort of thing.
See also Holger Berndt's Blog:

There are some example python scripts at:
If you install the auto/startup script, it will add a documentation link
